    Before they had Mortal Kombat to blame, they blamed Pinball.

    One thing I've never seen are the original price of these games, particularly 60's 70's games. I've always been extremely curious how much the factories were selling these for.

    I've not been able to find any information at all.

    You could look around at Billboard Magazine to get a sense of it. At least, used pricing. You can look at Billboards back to 1942 at books.google.com

    That guy has several good videos if you like pre-flipper games. Check out his channel.

    Thanks.
    I looked for a while at the Billboard Magazine archives. A lot of cool nostalgia there, including some predictions which can be interesting. For example the 12/26/1974 issue highlights "Radio may see an increase in Disco music". Gee, if they only knew.

    But I didn't see any pin pricing.

    Student film from 1973. Features a Spanish Eyes. You can also see a Pong and Computer Space in the background.

    FYI I read that Suzanne Ciani passed away a few months ago of cancer at age 52 in Florida.

    She was an accomplished pioneer in electronic music when she did the audio for Xenon.
